Harambee stars were defeated because of the oppressive regime: Miguna Miguna

Exiled lawyer and NRM general has bashed the state over its oppressive trait that led to the sunday night loss for Harambe stars in Egypt.

A smooth Algeria on Sunday night effortlessly brushed aside Kenya 2-0 in their Group “C” match at 30 June Stadium in Cairo.

A penalty slotted home by Qatari league top scorer Baghdad Bounedjah on 37 minutes and a fine finish by Manchester City midfielder Riyad Mahrez five minutes later gave the Desert Foxes a comfortably first half lead.

The second half was a bland affair with Algeria happy to play possessing football while Kenya, could hardly build any attack when they got hold of the ball.

Kenya were nervous all evening hardly able to hold on to the ball. They strung up their first meaningful move in the 18th minute that came to naught and got their first corner in the 43rd minute.
